Participation Details and Information
We welcome all businesses - both large and small - to join us! In the past, we've had the pleasure of working with big, established companies such as Kiss My Face, Revlon, Everyday Minerals, John Frieda, Ecco Bella, EOS, and Jergens - just to name a few. We've also worked with countless smaller, independent, up-and-coming businesses.
If you're looking for the best place to promote your business and gain more exposure for your products, you've come to the right place. We go above and beyond to help business owners reach their target audience and get the recognition that they deserve. It is our goal to help YOU succeed.
Trying a product before buying it makes for a much better online shopping experience. We know that Divas love to sample products before committing to the full sizes. In other words, they like to "try before they buy". If they love your product, then they will visit your site and buy more. That's how it works. That's why we are giving businesses the chance to put their products directly into the hands of hundreds of Divas (women between the ages of 21-49) throughout USA and Canada. We provide an effective way to get your products out there and to reach consumers who otherwise may never have known about YOUR business or YOUR products!
"From high-end products to handmade products...our boxes are filled with the best of the best."

If you are an an e-tailer (who ships to Canada and the USA) and you're interested in becoming a contributor, please contact us with your inquiries at email@example.com
Be sure to read the following FAQ's....
How To Participate
All you have to do is email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started. It is as simple as that. Just let us know that you are interested and would like to participate in one of our upcoming sample box campaigns. Provide us with the url address and brief description of your online business and be sure to tell us how many samples you will be contributing. You will need to send us a banner to promote your site ~(preferably a square 125x125 pixels banner or a long 468x60 pixels banner). If your banner does not meet these size specifications, we can simply re-size it for you. If you do not have a banner, no need to worry. We're here for you. We will create a simple banner for you to use on the Peek Inside The Box page - for free.
How Many Samples Should A Contributor Send?
You can send in as many sample-sized or full-sized items as you want - the choice is completely yours. We only require a minimum of 30 but believe that a minimum of 50+ samples delivers better results (this is highly recommended). The more the merrier! It all depends on how many boxes you would like to be in, how many consumers you'd like to reach, and how much exposure you'd like to get. Put your product into more hands...send 60, 80, 100 samples. There is no maximum! The businesses who send in the most samples will be considered our top sponsors for the campaign month. As a top sponsor, your banner and/or link will be placed on the front page of our website for extra exposure and your link will be placed in various extra spots in our campaign newsletters!
Please note: Any samples which are leftover from a sale, will remain on our shelves and be saved for the next round of boxes (which will be available during the next campaign).
How Much Will It Cost To Participate?
Our advertising services are FREE. That means that there is absolutely no cost to participate.
All you have to do is create your samples and mail them to us. Then, let us (the Divas at Sweet Delight) take care of the rest. Our sample box campaigns will advertise your business and help promote your products by putting them in the hands of Divas in the USA and Canada. Our avenue of advertising will also bring an increase of traffic to your online business website and give you a better online presence. There are 1,400+ Divas on our mailing list right now, waiting to try YOUR products and learn more about YOUR business. Join us today!
What Does The "Divalicious" Advertising Package Include?
- You will have your products and business cards included in our many boxes, which are sent out to hundreds of consumers throughout the USA and Canada.
- You will have your banner and link proudly displayed on our highly-ranked, highly-visited website during the months that you are participating. (Banners/links are added to the "Peek Inside The Box" page after samples arrive at our office. Top Sponsor banners are displayed in 2 spots...the "Peek Inside The Box" page and on the front page of our website.) In addition to the banner, link and sample box advertising, we provide an exciting description of your product contribution. This is something that we offer as an added bonus for the event. It is a brief description that is written by us (through our perspective) and is included for the sole purpose of helping consumers learn more about your products.
- We get your name out there and give you a better online presence. We save you time and take the hard work out of trying to find potential future customers by having an already established "target audience" ready and waiting to discover your business and your products. How great is that!
- You will have your link included in our event newsletters, viewed by over 4,600+ consumers. Great exposure!
- The event is promoted on our exciting Twitter page (which has a following of over 3,000+ fabulous people!) and on a variety of other forums, social networking platforms, high-traffic websites and more.
- We promote the event and all contributors on our popular, highly-ranked Delightful Divas In Business Blog (through links, etc.). Our blog has a loyal following of over 350+ Divas and tons of unique visitors each and every day that find us through all of the popular search engines.
- We promote the event on our new and exciting Official Sweet Delight Divalicious Sample Boxes Facebook Fan Page. We have a growing following of 580+ who actually WANT to discover your business and really WANT to buy the boxes. We do not belong to any Facebook "ladders" (gaining hundreds of uninterested followers), which means that these 580+ followers are actual box-buyers and sample-lovers who have "liked" our page because they truly LOVE our boxes and often share reviews and make purchases from our contributors.
- Improved search engine rankings by having your links on our website and blog, which are both highly-ranked on all of the most popular search engines.
- Your banner and link will remain on an archive page following your participation, which will continue to bring consumers your way and maintain good search engine rankings for you.
- All-in-all, you are getting over $90 of advertising for FREE!
Do Companies Get Paid To Participate?
No. By sending your samples for inclusion in our boxes, you receive free advertising. The money that we receive from the sale of each box helps to cover the cost of packing supplies, the high cost of shipping, advertising the event, and website maintenance.
How Often Can A Company Participate?
As often as you want! It's a free advertising service - so why not take advantage of it! We welcome companies to participate whenever they can. The more months that you return for advertising, the more "well-known" your business will become among consumers.
What Products Can Be Included In The Sample Boxes?
It's all about good advertising. We encourage e-tailers to send in samples that best represent their business and will attract the attention of sample box recipients. Choose items that will particularly appeal to Divas, will make them want to visit your website, and order from you again. Remember, you want to send samples that will stand out from the rest, get noticed, and impress our sample box recipients. Oh, and keep in mind that Divas especially love full size products....and anything that is gorgeous, girly-girl, and glam!
Here are a few suggestions of the divalicious items which we include in our sample boxes:
*Bath & Body Products (i.e. soaps, fizzies and bath bombs, bubble bath, scrubs, soaks, lotions, perfume, nail files, lip balms, etc.)
*Cosmetics - (i.e. mineral make-up, blush, foundation, lipstick, eyeshadow, etc.)
*Jewelry (i.e. bracelets, necklaces, rings, earrings, trinkets, etc.)
*Candles (i.e. votives, tarts, tea lights, melts, etc.)
*Pretty and Feminine Stationary, Artwork, Scrapbooking, and Craft Supplies (i.e. cards, notepads, rubber stamps, etc.)
*Hair/Fashion Accessories (i.e. bows, clips, ribbons, combs, etc.)
*Fancy Party Favors
....and the list of DIVALICIOUS ideas for our sample box could go on and on!
Please Note: For health and safety reasons, we have decided not to include any food samples or drink mixes in our boxes. Sorry.
Keep in mind that your samples don't all have to be the same. Feel free to send in a variety of samples. Either way, the choice is completely yours.
We highly recommend that you include business cards along with your samples. This will help spread the word about your online boutique and give additional advertising. You may also want to consider sending along a few gift certificates. (Gift certificates are a great way to attract visitors to your website. Customers usually spend more than the gift certificate is worth, which is always a plus.)
How To Package Samples
It is important that your samples be packaged with care. (cello and zip-lock bags, shrink wrap, and tiny boxes are perfect for packaging your samples.) Make sure that they are not broken or leaking. Samples should be attractive and appealing to the eye. Afterall, you want your samples to stand out from the rest. If your samples are fabulous, people will want to visit your website and order more. The key is to make a good first impression among hundreds of people. **Please note: bath and body products must be packaged and labeled properly and all ingredients must be listed clearly. Items that do not stand up to these specifications or general safety standards, will not go in our sample boxes.
When Must Samples Arrive To Be Included In Box?
Your samples MUST arrive at our office by the due date that we provide on the Calendar page.
Honor Your Commitment
When you sign-up as a contributor and reserve a spot in one of our box campaigns, all we ask is that you please honor your commitment. This is very important.
Here's how it works. For everyone who agrees to participate, a space is reserved in our boxes. When all spaces are booked for a campaign, we must then begin turning away other eager businesses who would like to advertise with us. When a contributor does not honor their commitment, it is unfair to other businesses who would gladly have participated.
So, be sure to honor your commitment. Thank you, in advance. We truly look forward to working with you.
If you would like any further information or would like to make an inquiry, please contact us.
We will be happy to assist you in any way we can.
